Yes Crysis plays smoother than most at lower FPS but that limit is around 30fps. 19fps smooth...ROTFLMAO.

Seems like some of you are not willing to sacrifice a single bit of image quality for fps improvement. lol pretty soon the standered for crysis will be 10-15fps.
I can understand where you're coming from, but Crysis is a very rare exception. I've been having a ball on the first few levels of Crysis simply because it runs well on a P4 system. I don't expect it to hit 30 fps constantly. That's madness for a low spec system on such a high spec game. What I DO expect is for the game to be playable and fun even at lowest settings, and indeed, Crytek has done that.

Now you tell me to play a game like TF2 or Call of Duty 4 at 15-20 fps, I'll laugh in your face. Both of those are very fast paced, multiplayer games that are reliant on a high FPS for a good gaming experience. Crysis doesn't need that. I can sneak around and blast people while cloaked like it's nothing. It's absolutely amazing how much you can do in this game. Now, if I went renegade and tried to kill everyone without using all the features of the nanosuit, I'd be fried in about 30 seconds. There's no doubt about that, but the game just seems so damn smooth even at around 20fps that I just don't see the need to get 60fps out of this game... Sure it would be nice, but it's not a requirement to have fun.
